Sun, May 17, 2024 - Personalizing the Shoah: Finding your Broken Branches
Topic: Personalizing the Shoah: Finding your Broken Branches
(Society Meetings – Zoom Only - 1:30 PM EST)
This online event is free for members of JGSGW. Nonmembers may register (Add to Cart) to attend for a fee of $5.
Program Description:  My four grandparents immigrated to the U.S. between 1900 and 1917. As such, I believed my family was not victimized by the Holocaust. During the Holocaust genocide, 40% of all Jews worldwide perished. As Jews, we ALL experienced loss, whether you know it or not.
With very little effort, I found 20 family members who perished and began honoring them over 10 years ago. Over the last few years, I was inspired to dive a little deeper and organize my list, that has grown to 210 people, aged 1 to 90, into family groups … my goal being to have a memorial book to share with my family and community.
In this session, I plan to show how to find your family (victims, survivors and heroes) to personalize the Shoah, as it relates to you as a member of the Jewish Community.  We will explore research tools available from Yad Vashem (The World Holocaust Remembrance Center), the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, Yizkor Books, and others online. So you, too, will “Always Remember to Never Forget.”
Speaker: I. Michael Snyder is a member of JGSGW.  He has been working on his family history for over 20 years beginning with resources inherited from other family members. When he got started he knew of 14 ancestors going back only 4 generations. Now he’s confirmed over 90 ancestors going back 9 generations, with a tree numbering over 3,800 individuals. He got started in genealogy thanks to his wife, Phyllis English, who wanted to validate her ancestry through the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). Michael and his wife foster beagles through B.R.E.W. and have had over 300 dogs come through their home. Yes, they have done DNA analysis on a number of their fosters.
